Some of you may want to want his show (Ray Mears). You can find many many episodes on YouTube. He goes out in the wild and looks for the foods that our HGs ancestors would have eaten. He has done episodes in different regions (cold weather, tropical, savanna, etc).
Previous to watching this show I was considering that perhaps our ancestors were mostly running on ketosis. After watching some episodes I realize that the idea is kind of silly, where ever he goes (even in cold climates) he uses plants for carbohydrates (mostly roots). Obviously, animal food is always the bigger share of his calories.
He also did an episode to show how HGs couldn't have possibly eaten any grains. He took pretty much all afternoon and night to make like 200 calories worth of food (using primitive tools).

Mind you, it shows his anthropological knowledge isn's as good as he likes to imply it is - not that I ever thought it was - if he thinks hunter-gatherers ate low-fat.
Oh, go away, Ray.... Remove the excess fat then tenderise the venison ...
To be fair I'd say that recipe was put in by the journalist, Ray Mears isn't really a recipe writer and it does not link the details to him.Mind you, it shows his anthropological knowledge isn's as good as he likes to imply it is - not that I ever thought it was - if he thinks hunter-gatherers ate low-fat.
... Remove the excess fat then tenderise the venison ...
Oh, go away, Ray.
Also I'll bet Ray's anthropological knowledge is better than almost anyone here. Few people can have actually met, learnt from and hunted/gathered with as many different surviving hunter-gatherer groups as him.
If you actually watch his episodes you'll learn how he explains HGs relished fat and organ meats. He also explains that animal products supplied the majority of calories for HGs.... Remove the excess fat then tenderise the venison ...
When are people going to learn that paleo has nothing to do with macro-nutrient distribution and everything to do with food quality? Have fun making the same mistakes low-fat promoters did 30 years ago.
